      i think its such an adorable idea- i went to my friends wedding from my college and she doesnt have any brothers- but she was carried in the doli by our guy friends and there were three in front and three in back and i think it was soo adorable the only funny part was the doli is heavy wen the girl sits in it with her 1000 pound wedding dress so the guys walk like penguins and u see them struglle walking in with it haha lol but i think its realli cute

          Re: dholi for the bride

          All weddings in my family have brides leaving in a doli, it's a tradition.

          I think it's less common nowadays because it's hard to cram a bridal lengha into a doli without crushing it and getting in and out of one is hard to do elegantly too.

            I've only seen that happen in movies to be honest, never been to a real wedding where a doli is used.. seems cute.

              I think its a very traditional idea, as in olden days when there were no cars, brides usually were carried in a doli.

              Usually the brothers or cousins of the bride carry the doli.

              Its a good idea for these days weddings, if you want people to talk about your wedding, being unique.

              The doli is made of bamboos and wood. The inside of the doli is usually lined with foam and cushions. So its not uncomfortable with a net or a thin cloth for the curtains.

              Here are some pics of dolis for ideas. You can put a modern touch to it by adding flowers.

              Dolis are also good for mayoo or mehndis..

                Let's see who will carry me.. or if i even get the chance to sit in it.. :halo:

                          My fiance loves the idea. I'm not too big on it -- in fact, I don't fancy it at all.
                          Anyway, I'm doing it for his sake and since he knows I like doings things differently, he has gotten me a Glass Doli for the wedding. Its quite wonderful, I admit. Nothing like the flowers and traditional type.

                            ive been to a couple weddings that have dolis but i lyk the traditional american idea of the father giving the daughter away so im gonna have my dad walk me to my fiance. and besides i have 2 brothers and they are both so young.
                            cute but not for me.
